talked about the hilltoppers next, the home opener on espn2. and that visit to oxford. the last couple times, rebels have gotten them. that's a game on the 17th. and then, saban's alma mater, kentucky. back-to-back road games against arkansas and tennessee. visit lsu. circle that one, november 5th, though, the tigers a little bit deflated already, with a loss. >> kirk: before we watched any games being played, i had alabama winning thet s.e.c. championship and getting into the playoff. actually getting to the national title. you look at that schedule, after what we've watched this -- it's only week one, but after what we've watched -- i mean, they -- they look really good. they look like they're going to just kind of continue to take off where they were last year and potentially -- i think they're going to be as good, if not better defensively, because i they they're going to be
guys are a year older and wiser. jalen hurts is potentially an x factor, with what he can do in running this offense. his ability to throw and run. they have four running backs that they can use. the line's only going to get better week after week. they're going to be a tough out. >> chris: burnett takes a turn at punt returner. he's got a little room. that's out near midfield. what dou there were certainly some lows. >> kirk: well, arkansas came back and won that, by a point. >> chris: mississippi state missing that chip shot at the end. >> kirk: georgia, that's a great win over north carolina. wisconsin outplayed lsu most of that game and deserved to win. west virginia ends up beating missouri. florida with a win. a&m in overtime that was a great win over ucla. it's not -- that doesn't include
gai game on thursday night, which wasn't a strong performance by the s.e.c. >> chris: auburn's defense doing a strong job against clemson, but still down by ten against the clemson tigers. and then you have ole miss against florida state, underdogs the game monday. usc with a toughest rated schedule in the country, says the fpi. we're going to see them up on the farm in palo alto. the conference opener. they play the three toughest s two of them on the road. that is a rough, rough road. and the home finale against notre dame. >> kirk: when you include alabama in the nine games they play in the pac-12, they're going to end up playing one of the toughest schedules in the country. that's why it was so important, chris, to come into this game, for clay helton to get his team to hit some adversity and fight through it. not let this game get away g you
them to accomplish this year than just playing alabama and they missed out on that opportunity after competing early in the game, obviously, this thing has gotten away. >> chris: dominique davis gets a turn. this will not be, apparently, the worst loss in usc history. that was back in '66, a 51-0 loss to notre dame, but it is one of the worst, and mercifully, for them, it's in the final minute. the ford wrapup coming up after the gam what's the headline going to be, hurts so good, for the offensive line? or all about the defense? >> kirk: i would think you got to talk about the freshman quarterback, i mean, the defense is a staple and they looked great tonight, but jalen hurts, and some of the plays that he came up with, probably got to be a big story, don't you think? >> chris: quarterback keeper.
s.e.c., or, usc struck first and then, the s.e.c. and alabama punched back in a big way. saban will still have work to do, he'll tell you, lots of improvement is needed, but jalen hurts, his debut, the true freshman, spectacular. and lane kiffin calling plays against his former school, enjoyed just about every minute of this.
>> chris: big debut for jalen hurts. tide defense holding the trojans to just 194 yards. let's get saban's reaction down with samantha. >> samantha: coach, big night for your freshman quarterback that didn't even start the game. so, do you think jalen did enough tonight to earn that role, to be the guy for you? >> well, you know, he did a nice job tonight. i'm not sure we don't have a couple guys that can play quarterback, and i said,
tonight was for now, so, it's for now. it was for now. we started another guy, he come in and played well. you know, if we can build with that, then we'll do that. but i think the focus for our team, our quarterbacks and everybody else, needs to be on improvement. i thought we played sloppy at times, made a lot of big plays, but we have to be more consistent in our execution. especially on offense. so, we got a lot of work to do. >> samantha: i know at halftime you talked to me about blocking. is that the main concern offensively? >> we didn't get started very well. we couldn't run the ball. we didn't control the line of scrimmage in the beginning of the game. one first down in the first quarter. so, you know, i know it looks like, 52-6, everybody's happy, i'm happy we won the game. i think southern cal has a good team. but i also think we have a lot of work to do. >> samantha: bama fans are happy to hear that. coach, congratulations. you can enjoy it a little bit, though. >> chris: we knew he'd be a
12 yards given up after the first quarter. yes, they got off to a slow start. ran for 242, throwing for 223. >> kirk: they were sloppy tonight. a lot of work to do. clean some things up. they won 52-6, but in reality, first game, they were slow out of the gate. trying to figure out if blake barnett was going be the guy. they finally went to hurts and took advantage of some opportunities. the game flipped. and just like that, went from being a close game, sc playing taking control of the game up 17-3 and really that was it. >> chris: the reason why saban is guarded, it was one game. we're not sure what sc was going to be. they lost six games a year ago. they had high hopes. this may not look -- >> kirk: he's going to down play it, of course. and he's got ole miss in two weeks. a team that he's lost to two straight years. that's the laser focus right now. >> chris: alabama a little slow out of the gate and then began
pretty much all over very, very early in the third quarter. tide looking very much like a number one-ranked team. tonight's game here was produced by bill minnow. next saturday, saturday night football will be at the bristol motor speedway, as virginia tech takes on tennessee. that's a wrap for now, but the ford next, so, let's go to cassidy hubbarth right now for that. thanks, chris. welcome to the ford wrapup. the 2016 college football season certainly knows how to make a good first impression. and if you are into upsets, then, it's certainly living up to the title as the greatest opening weekend ever. ever ever? ever ever. that is, unless, you're an lsu fan. brandon harris, with one of his two interceptions.
